Prayers for World Peace

Weekly Meditation Classes in Albuquerque

Prayers for World Peace

Sunday Mornings | 10–11:15am / In-Person & On YouTube

Feel empowered to change yourself and change your world. Learn simple and profound meditation practices that can help you experience inner peace and bring meaning and joy in your life. Classes focus on solutions to our daily problems, inducing genuine optimism and increased happiness. Each class is self-contained and includes guided meditation, a short teaching, and beautiful prayers dedicated to World Peace.

“We should know that learning to cherish others is the best method for establishing world peace in general, and for our own peace of mind in particular." —Geshe Kelsang Gyatso


Each class includes guided meditations, teaching, and time for Q&A (not available for online-only classes). A brief introduction of the topic will be presented followed by a guided meditation to settle the mind, the main teaching, and a closing guided meditation.

The main teaching will cover the class topic. It includes an explanation of Buddhist practices and methods to apply them to your daily life through meditation, contemplation, and effort. Reference to particular pages in books may be offered. It is not necessary to have the coursebook in order to benefit, but you may find it helpful. Further reading is always encouraged.

Each teaching ends with another guided meditation specifically to help students take the teaching to heart and be able to begin to practice on their own what they’ve learned in class.
